How To Submit A Nsfas Appeal

For students all around South Africa, tertiary education is a significant financial investment. Many students may not be able to attend a higher education institution if they do not receive support.

Many students who desire to attend a university or a Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college may face financial exclusion if they do not receive financing from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (Nsfas).

If your application for funding was rejected by Nsfas, you are allowed to submit an appeal.
